My daughter turns 3 this year.
Her birthday doesn’t fall on Thanksgiving like it did the night she was born, but we will celebrate Thanksgiving no matter what the calendar says.
We’ll just eat our Turkey some other day of the week.
No calendar made by man can tell me when I should be “thankful”.
An election is a big event.
Here in the States, we just had an election.
That news would be hard to miss.
It was all over the media, after all.
Now we are finding out how much of the contest was manipulated.
Of course, the results of the manipulation didn’t work out the way it was intended.
This is all stuff that we weren’t supposed to know about.
Those emails were private.
Why wouldn’t you be paranoid when you get to peek behind the curtain for a moment like that?
Why would you want to keep going?
Wouldn’t it be easier to just hunker down and peek out from behind your living room curtains?
The world is an evil place and it is out to get you.
If you google “Bilderberg”, you’ll find a bunch of information about conspiracy.
They’re kind of a secretive group….so conspiracy about them and their motives is something that makes sense.
I didn’t bother to look up “George Soros”, but he’s apparently quite the puppet master, too.
Did I mention that my youngest daughter turns three this year?
I can’t sustain any interest in paranoia about our future….or the people who are supposedly trying to influence it.
I have to believe that the majority of the people in this world are good and have each other’s best interests at heart.
This might be pretty naive, but it’s something that I have to believe.
That is something that I choose to believe.
I have to go through my life with a positive expectation for the future.
The funniest part of all of it is this: it is hard to say if people will behave themselves. We may have a horrible war again. We may have EMP strikes that take us back to the dark ages. Horrible things may happen….but, we might behave. All of that is true. Any of it might happen. But…we might be able to avoid it. The thing that I expect, though, is that for all of our “good intentions” or good behavior, what is going to take us out is going to be something environmental.
We will practice our diplomacy, make our deals, exercise secrets and manipulation…and maybe keep everything from hitting the fan in our narrow and manufactured idea of what the world is really all about, but the thing that is going to take us down will probably be a slowly developing environmental issue that might be too late to avoid….and, even though it took a while to get here, is going to accelerate in a way that will astound and terrify.
That’s kind of depressing.
No….that’s really depressing.
That’s something that falls outside of the accepted range of concerns for some, though.
The environment can go to hell as long as the wheels of commerce and politics keep turning.
I still have faith in people, even if, on a macro….and a micro level, they don’t always inspire that faith.
From what I’ve seen, people sometimes let you down.
God doesn’t….but, people?
You can never tell what people are really up to.
But you have to love them.
You have to love.
Where would we be without that?
